Granted, there were a lot of other factors like Martin, Orpik, and Z playing defense like they were at a casual game of winter shinny after a long night of drinking... but nonetheless I thought Kris could have put forward a better effort in the defensive zone.
god that philly series still makes my blood boil. what an absolute disaster. fleury outplayed by bryz, crosby outplayed by giroux, malkin owned by rookies, laviolette making bylsma look ridiculous, traitor jagr beating us.

this supposed battle-hardened veteran team built for the playoffs played right into the flyers side-show crap.

only bright side is crosby didnt get hurt and flyers didnt win the cup. if either of those two things happened i would have seriously gone insane.

i like living in philly but god damn flyers.
